Supporting children in times of conflict
This page provides information/advice/guidance and signposting to organisations and resources relevant to supporting Service children and non-Service children during times of conflict.
Times of conflict and crisis affect many families, Service and civilian, and a school community plays a vital part in ensuring our families feel safe and supported during a potentially challenging time.
It is not uncommon for Service children to experience regular changes to their family and school lifestyle, which can be at relatively short notice. Service families are adaptable and generally very resilient in times of uncertainty. They also have access to a lot of support from the MOD, charities (including the family federations), and through many Armed Forces community networks.
The SSCE Cymru School Toolkit includes a section on Mental Health and Wellbeing, which provides information about local authority, Health Board and school level wellbeing support and interventions.
